Labour appears to be benefitting most
For the first time since mid-April UKIP has dropped below the LDs in fourth place in the YouGov daily poll.
At the same time Labour continues to advance and today’s share and recent results suggest that the party is benefitting most from UKIP going off the boil.
This is just one poll from one pollster but today’s finding reflects a trend that we’ve seen in recent days.
My view is that since the blitz of coverage following the May 2nd local the focus has waned and that might impact more with pollsters like YouGov which don’t put the purples on their opening voting intention question page. Instead respondents have to tick “some other party” before they get the option.
